Open Recent Office 2008 Docs by Date

Office 2008 applications like Word and Excel now list recently opened documents on a File > Open Recent submenu. Choose More from that menu, and you'll get a multifunction Project Gallery dialog. Click the Recent button at the top and then select a date range in the Dates list to find files that were last opened today, yesterday, earlier in the week, last week, and so forth. (The Settings pane in the Project Gallery dialog lets you set how many recently opened files show in the File > Open Recent submenu.)

 
 

Firefox 11.0

Send Article to a Friend

Mozilla continues its relentlessly hurtling climb to a triple-digit version number with Firefox 11 (a.k.a. the Nigel Tufnel Special Edition), which is light on new features that you’ll actually notice (though developers get a couple of new toys). The new Add-on Sync feature enables you to keep your add-ons copacetic across multiple computers (go to the Sync tab in Preferences to opt into this), and you can now migrate bookmarks, history, and cookies from Google Chrome. Also, users of Growl 1.3 and later will get a welcome return of notifications. On the developer side, the update adds the Style Editor tool for editing CSS stylesheets in a text editor and the Page Inspector 3D View, a WebGL-based visualization tool that provides a three-dimensional view of the HTML elements on your page (see this Mozilla blog entry for a video demonstration). Firefox 11 also provides support for the outerHTML and CSS text-size-adjust properties, and includes redesigned media controls for HTML5 video. The update is rounded out by a variety of security fixes. (Free, 32 MB, release notes)

I wonder how many folks will get the Nigel Tufnel joke ("Yes, but this amp goes to 11"). Hilarious, and right on for Firefox.

Anyone who doesn't get it must immediately go to Netflix and stream "This Is Spinal Tap". Required watching for all TidBITS readers! :-)
